how interesting to see Carol's post - I saw a junco in my yard this morning that looked just like her photo; it took me a minute of "what in the world is that bird?" before the bill and leg color, shape and behavior registered as junco, then I just assumed it was a pale, almost peachy-colored female; the back was solid color, with no appearance of contrast in the feather edges - could they be hybridization with Oregon?

My husband and I saw this dark-eyed junco among several others today. Is it a leucistic bird, a sub-species or just very light in coloring? Ebird link included.Any thoughts?https://ebird.org/checklist/S62734584Â Â
